Hi there, I've always loved the 75 and although I know it's a complicated nightmare of a car I've gone and bought one to add to my beautiful 155 (so I can call that a 'collection')
The car is 18 years old but it has spent a large part of that sitting on its arse doing nothing (including the past 9 years), so in car terms it's probably only about 6 or 7, if that.
It's a 2 litre and it's black
The price bears no relation to the quality the car is in because the seller isn't mechanically minded, doesn't really know what he has and just wants rid while being sentimental enough to want it to go to a good home because he knows they're rare - which is where I come in
From you learned gentlemen (and ladies?) I'd really appreciate some kind of a checklist of the essential stuff to look out for on a 75 that has been lying up this long. Obviously all fluids need to be drained and replenished. Tyres will likely be rotten. It is galvanised and the body is in good nick.
It really is a little gem and will be beautiful as soon as possible.
I am hoping the inboard discs don't need doing but they probably will :/ Is that the ***** of a job that I've heard it is and is it like doing normal discs only a bit more awkward or is it totally different.
All help and advice greatly appreciated. Hold off on the horror stories for now, I haven't actually got my greasy mits on it yet and don't want cold feet
